Our man of many styles and even more aliases strikes with another surprise: experimental dub-hop?! The first track, Underground, represents a truly mind-boggling reinterpretation of spoken words over music, miles ahead of the stale formulaic product served by most of the hip-hop industry today. Showing that unique production method matters more than fitting into preconceived genre pigeon holes, Haze travels a continuous arc from Underground via Miami Bass, an electro freestyle improvisation, to...

Dominick Baier and Bao-Nghi Droste are not in a hurry - and we should be thankful for that. The laid-back arrangements of "turm3disko" grant each of their meticulously crafted sequences ample time to self-assuredly strut their stuff and show off on the mental catwalk before remeshing with neighboring sound threads to form tight-knit yet surprisingly flexible textures. Much attention is paid to intricate surface detail, yet all songs are based on a profound understanding of deepness....

Inspired by months of feasting on pasta and belgian frites, Starch Boy emerges from the depths of self discipline and introspection, where he has been living for the last year (and might retreat back to for many years to come). Starch Boy's debut EP on Textone has the funk and flavor to make your booty bend, no stale junk here baby. When Starch Boy moved to Amsterdam in January 2003 he had only two things on his mind: to eat alot of pasta and to produce an EP for textone within 12 months. He...

After a two year long hiatus from publishing music, Peter F. Spiess returns on Textone with an astounding mini-LP. Known from his releases on German labels Klang and Alpha, Peter has developed a unique personal production style, layering minimal driving analog sequences into a captivating cinematic stream of utopian impressions. Epic, but miles away from any associated cliches, Peter manages to create an alternate universe of seemingly endless space that is at all times densely interwoven with...

Floor-friendly four-tracker by Cologne's René Breitbarth. Known for smooth-as-hell tech house, this man has become a true veteran of the community with double digit EP releases on Treibstoff, Sub Static, Pokerflat, and Tongut; a superb full-length album; and innumerable compilation credits. Blessed with the feel for a great hook line, René's German funk is a sure winner with the house crowd (on either side of the Atlantic), but he is also driving enough to keep technoid listeners engaged on...

With only subtle effects use but all-the-more-carefully crafted sounds, Theodor Zox takes us on a different kind of journey into Scandinavia as an architectural utopia constructed out of beautiful synth lines and high-frequency ornament. Very calm, but swinging and enviably optimistic. The artist about his work: "Being a very visual person, as well as having synasthetic experiences through my entire life, I perceive sound as form and colour. For me every sound is equally important so...

With "Whats dat smell?", dual G4 laptop warrior Kero delivers five glimpses into the schizoid brilliance of his next-generation Detroit sound. Raised on a healthy diet of Motor city techno, Kero manages to incorporate early influences while creating a completely new and boldly innovative oeuvre. His trademark style of scattered percussion freakfests over droning, hovering electro pads, first unleashed on the "CFC Windsor" album on Berlin's Shitkatapult label, finds ample...

Hailing from Germany's far north, with a rock-solid history in technoid sound manipulation, Sebastian Buchholz delivers a dense five-tracker dominated by minimal driving beat structures and lush chordscapes. Organic sounds that nevertheless always wear their electronic origin on the sleeves abound. Sebastian's music is at times dark, yet not menacing - rather, it is an all-envelopping and almost tactile blend that always preserves a warm inner glow. "Nocturnal lurking" plays a game of...
